English Premier League side, Man United are reportedly planning to sign Leicester City goalkeeper, Kasper Schmeichel this summer transfer window.

The Red Devils seem desperate for a new goalkeeper with David De Gea’s poor performance in the restart of the season. Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seems to have lost faith in him and will consider another option.

Man United are already being linked with a move for Atletico Madrid shot-stopper, Jan Oblak but there are complications in the deal as he is valued very high at the Spanish La Liga club.

Reports according to the Sun claim the Red Devils consider the son of their legend, Peter Schmeichel as he is being rated as a ready-made option that will be able to fill the gap if David De Gea leaves.

Although MEN Sport is reporting that a goalkeeper is not a priority for manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as he would rather focus his attention on defenders after he has been able to capture the signature of England international Jadon Sancho from German Bundesliga side, Borussia Dortmund.

Man United have been able to secure qualification to the Champions League next season and will have to do enough transfer deals to be able to compete in the coming season.
